First-Principles Investigation of Structural, Elastic and Electronic Properties of Lanthanide Titanate Oxides Ln2TiO5

  • Hui Niu (a1), Huiyang Gou (a1), Rodney C. Ewing (a2) and Jie Lian (a1)


Systematic first-principles calculations based on density functional theory were performed on a wide range of Ln2TiO5 compositions (Ln = La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd, Tb, Dy and Y) in order to understand the correlation between structural, elastic and electronic properties. A complete set of elastic parameters including elastic constants, Hill’s bulk moduli, shear moduli, Young’s moduli and Poisson’s ratio, were calculated. All Ln2TiO5 are ductile in nature, and analysis of densities of states and charge densities suggests that the oxide bonds are highly ionic.
